Welcome to the Year 6 page. Please take the time to have a look at what we have been doing so far in Year 6 and also what we will be doing as the year progresses.
Our class teachers are Miss Deakins and Miss Pearson. Mrs White and Mrs Twigg are our teaching assistants.
6D and 6P P.E - Tuesday and Thursday.
We are having a big push on times tables and arithmetic this term. Your child will receive a range of skill focused homework throughout the year. Homework will be handed out on Thursdays and be returned by Thursday the following week.
Spellings will also be sent home weekly. These should be practised 3 times a week, following the look, cover, write, check format.
This afternoon, Year 6 took part in 'The Great Bug Hunt.' They identified various minibeasts and studied their habitats.
This week, Year 6 were joined by a group of journalists to create 'The Kidgate Times'. Issues will be hot off the press and with you shortly!
Our Easter Gardens
Our Science Morning: Year 6 welcomed their parents into the classroom this morning to investigate forces in action! The children made their own blow rockets and then tested the distance that they travelled. We discovered that there were a lot of forces acting upon our rockets.
We've had a great time as part of World Book Day guessing what the children's clues meant - some of them had us all flummoxed!
Dan Hawbrook (an LSCB e-safety expert) has been into Year 6 to talk about how to stay safe online in the ever-changing world of technology.
As part of RSPB's 'Big Garden Bird Watch' , Year 6 have spent this morning observing our natural environment and recording the different types of birds that they spotted.
Year 6 have been getting festive by making their own calendars. Take a look at what some of the children are getting up to in the four seasons!

Year 6 have been getting prepared for Enterprise next week. Keep an eye out for our delicious products!
In Maths, we have been working in a team to solve addition and subtraction problems.
The mod-roc models have been painted this week and the children are so proud of their finished products. As you can see, the paint has really made a huge difference to their buildings!
This week, Year 6 have been using mod-roc to create a 3D village. We have got creations ranging from a dolphin water fountain to The Brown Cow pub! Keep a look out for the completed versions soon!
We have been solving decimal and fraction tarsias in our maths lessons. We worked against the clock and team work was essential.
This term, Year 6 have been looking at the heart and its role within the double circulatory system. Part of this has involved the children designing their own investigations to see what effect exercise has on pulse rate.
Our amazing homework projects: The Layers of the Earth.
Some of Year 6 took part in the PGL visit and had a week jam-packed with activities. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and experienced a number of different challenges such as abseiling, rock climbing, raft building and a sensory trail, to name a few.
